Bu durumun makale degerlendirmesi ve seciminde ki ozenin bir isareti oldugunu dusunuyoruz. Turn yazarlarimiza ve hakemlerimize tedekkur ederiz.

Buradan bir kez daha hatirlatmak isteriz ki; Turk Toraks Dergisi'nde makalelerin basima kabulu; calimanin bilimsel duzeyine, guncelligine, literature katkida bulunmasma ve sonuc olarak da atif alma potansiyeline baglidir. Bu cercevede, akciger hastaliklariyla ilgili orijinal, guncel konulu cali^malarinizi bekliyoruz. Makaleleriniz tamamen seffaf ve uluslararasi bilimsel kriterler cercevesinde dani^manlarimiz tarafmdan degerlendirilerek size yanit verilecektir.

Turk Toraks Dergisi'nin 12. cildini cikardigimiz bu sayimizda yine dopdolu bir icerikle karnizdayiz.

Bu sayimizda, "dumansiz tutun-deli tutun" olarak da bilinen, ulkemizde, Asya ulkelerinde, Norvec ve isvec'te kullanilan "Mara^ Otu" ile ilgili ilginc bir aratirmaya yer veriyoruz.

Sevgi ve saygilanmizla.

Dear Colleagues;

Although the release history of our journal is not very long comparing to the other international journals, as of July 2011 it has been cited almost 100 times according to Web of Science records. We think this score is a sign of the amount of attention paid during article evaluation and selection process. We thank all of our authors and reviewers.

We would like to remind you once more; acceptance of an article for inclusion in Turkish Thoracic Journal depends on the studies contribution to the literature, scientific level, up-to-dateness and therefore its potential to be cited. Within this scope, we expect your original and up-to-date studies about lung diseases. Your articles will be evaluated by our consultants in line with the international scientific measures in a transparent way and you will be replied appropriately.

Our webpage which enables you to view the whole content of our printed issues is renewed as of this issue. You can now read all of the articles and share the content with your colleagues through our faster and user friendly interface.

We are in your presence with 12'h Volume of Turkish Thoracic Journal presenting overflowing content.

This issue includes an interesting research article about "Maras Powder" as known as "smokeless tobacco" which is used in Turkey, Asian countries, Norway and Sweden.

With our love and respect.
